The Wall Street Journal editors slammed Ocasio-Cortez for her remarks Monday in an editorial titled, “Democrats for Defying Court Orders.”
“One depressing sign of the political times is that partisans on the left and right are willing to trash political norms and institutions to get their way. The latest example comes from Democrats urging the Biden Administration to ignore last week’s federal court order concerning the abortion drug mifepristone,” the editors wrote. “This is dangerous for the rule of law.”
The editorial board contended that if Biden took such as course of action, conservatives would follow suit once they were in power.
